Voivod - Unleash 'Synchro Anarchy' Single

"Synchro Anarchy", the newest single from Voivod's soon-to-be-released self-titled record, has premiered online in the form of an official music video. The clip was directed by Syl Disjonk. Official album release date: February 11th, 2022.

Drummer Michel Langevin comments about the song as follow: "After coming back from the European tour with Gwar at the end of 2019, we took a break and got back together in early 2020 to record some new ideas and improvisations. After finishing one of these sessions, while untying my running shoes, I had a flash of a rhythm where I would skip one beat every bar. I told the band I had an idea and walked towards the drums but I stepped on one of my shoelaces, missed a step and almost fell on the drum kit.

"Everybody laughed, then I played the beat, which Chewy recorded and named "Away's Shoelace Incident". This gave Snake the idea to write about these strange timings where somebody would stop to tie up his shoe only to be closely missed by a flying wheel of a car. At one point Snake had shorten the title to "Shoelace"’ but I noticed in his lyrics the words "Synchro Anarchy" and told him it would be a great name for the song.

"When we were done recording the songs we all thought it would also be a good title for the album. It is really representative of the planet we live on and the way we had to build the LP out of snippets of ideas like a huge puzzle."

Excellent, I can't wait to hear the whole album.
Two more weeks...
I thought the two primary purposes for the internet were cat memes and overreactions.

Decent song quite funky, and technical.

Nothing special and at the same time it's the "classic" Voivod sound they managed to return to after some weaker records. I can listen to this, I will check the album, but as usual I probably will forget the release date and will be back in 6 months.
